Inscription. Othneil Beale, sea Captain from New England, Colonel of Provincial Troops, Engineer, Successful merchant, built this house about 1740, with ground floors for mercantile use, and living rooms above Finely Cypress Paneled. The previous owners, Justice and Mrs. Lionel K. Legge, who purchased it in 1931 were the Pioneers in Restoring this block of East Bay, then a slum, after a lapse of six years, others inspired by their example, carried the restoration forward, and house by house this degraded area has been transformed into a row of charming, colorful residences.
